I don’t dislike the dude, but he’s mad old and just had a blood vessel pop out on live television. There is a clear issue there.

Elizabeth Warren seems like the most electable democrat from the bunch. Why doesn’t the party rally around her instead? Legitimately curious on this one.

Name recognition

Obama's friend

Landlines poll old people mostly.

Warren been surging because she's sucking in Kamala supporters. Kamala is funny, she made fun of Tulsi being a second tier candidate and now she is in that tier.

Yang is taking Bernie votes more and more.

Elizabeth Warren

So if 76 is "mad old", what does that make 70?

Seems like what I see a lot is that people want change but they don't want to take risks. But you can't really have one without the other. I know people who don't like the life they're in but they stay in it because it's familiar, it's "safe".

That's how I see Biden. He's the safe choice. He's not proposing big reforms like those other Democratic candidates. He's saying let's just stick to what we've done before.

That's the less risky course, but that's not how we build a better country. That's how we stagnate. The big ideas these other candidates want to try will probably have a lot of problems at first, because that's the nature of trying something new. Heck, they might fail completely. But that's the chance we've got to take if we want to actually change the country. We've got to have the courage to not just play it safe.

He's the Democrat equivalent to Rudy Giuliani running on "I was the mayor on 9/11!"

The question has an obvious answer, despite people not wanting to accept it.

If your candidate isnt getting support over someone else, then like it or not, your candidate isnt appealing to them.

To answer your question TC for myself, I dont like candidates who promise the world. Promises that are not likely to pass. It gets people to rally around the thought of it sounding nice but not look at the realism of it ever passing. Idealism over realism essentially. I also find some of her ideas going too far.

May be tough to accept but your candidate isnt what everyone wants.
